Chuck D & Ice-T
East meets West in this iconic snapshot, which shows the father of gangsta rap alongside the founder of hip-hop’s political movement. It’s Ice-T meets Chuck D, both men both highly esteemed and respected for their high-risk lyrics and innovative ideas that have established multiple foundations in the art of rap.
After over 25 years into the genre, both men project iconic figures still vastly relevant in the game. Chuck D has become a landmark choice for numerous organizations and foundations, and often appears providing sage wisdom on public speeches and radio shows. On the other side, Ice-T continues his activism through his rap/metal band, Body Count, and has released his critically-acclaimed documentary, The Art of Rap.
Chuck D was in it too, by the way.
